Eating while dancing maximizes bodily efficiency, as incoming calories and outgoing energy cancel each other out, but not before the two exchange phone numbers and halves of a friendship necklace. Balance your body's activity with today's Groupon: for $14, you get $30 worth of fare and drink at District Grill Restaurant & Eleven Nightclub in West Hollywood.
Pulsating inside the former music studio frequented by Donna Summer and Prince, among others, the beacon of dining and dancing known as District Grill Restaurant & Eleven Nightclub proffers savory sustenance and spinning tunes. Inside District Grill Restaurant’s multi-tiered art-deco dining hall awaits a menu of imaginative modern American fare. Flirt with appetizers of smoked bacon-wrapped dates dressed to kill in blue cheese ($7.95), or bow down to Idaho's national vegetable at the frites bar ($5) where Belgian-style russet or sweet-potato fries, each served with a seasoning of parmesan or pesto chili lime, swing with sauces ranging from tangy ranch to curry ketchup. Entrees showcase fresh seafood, char-grilled steaks, creamy pastas, and more. The signature, handcrafted Boystown burger ($10.50), outfitted in Angus beef, arugula, and provolone, is a local favorite, and a platter of slow-cooked, tender braised pork carnitas with achiote served with rice, beans, and guacamole ($15.50), preps dancing feet for District Grill’s happening other half, the Eleven Nightclub. Every night offers a different theme or extravagance at this LGBT-friendly hotspot. Sing along to showtunes on Musical Mondays, outwit the room on Trivia Tuesday, or grab a stiff libation from a scantily clad bartender on Fresh Fridays, where partygoers flock to DJs like snakes to a plane.
- Great space inside. Upstairs there's tons of room for dancing and lounging. And they actually have a pretty good happy hour, too. – Erin G., Yelp, 1/18/2011
- As a regular at 11 I can say without a doubt it is one of my favorite spots in the area. The food is always prepared masterfully and always arrives at the table hot. – ugotgary, Citysearch
